If the mower has been stored outside the magneto could have rust on it. Remove the top of the engine cover. There is a coil that's bolts to the block the the magnet of the magneto passes by as it rotates. See it there is rust on the magnet. If so. Take a fine grit sandpaper and remove the rust. The rust changes the air gap causing no voltage to the ignition coil. Thus no spark at the plug. I've corrected this problem twice with same symptoms as yours.

Are there timing marks on 19hp kohler

No, there is a key in the shaft that ensures that the flywheel is lined up properly. These sometimes shear and the flywheel slips on the shaft, this causes the timing to go affordable as the magnets don't pass the coil at the correct time. Remove the blower cover, undo the centre nut, slip up the flywheel, replace the key in the keyway in the shaft and realign the flywheel. This should solve the problem.

Why does my engine run perfect for 5 minutes then rough?

Sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Does the choke stay open? The motor could be overheating, too. Make sure the heat sink blades are free of junk.

Fh580v has weak spark

Weak battery? That is the simplest and best way to eliminate that factor. Even if it runs it can seem charged but will be giving less power to some components. Maybe the charge system is weak. Run it with jumpers or a diff battery and check spark. Same thing? Ok. Check all your grounds, connectors, wiring, and particularily the coil terminals for corrosion and looseness. All good? Test the m,d.cWcagneto and ignition coil. Heres a video. Only other thing could be bad plugs or wires. Good luck.
